The Linen we use in our shirts is cultivated in Normandy, where favourable conditions and generations of knowledge gives life to the most precious linen of the world. Linen is a fibre which is European by history and tradition.
The nature, composition and architecture of the fibres give the flax excellent properties; maximum resistance, high capacity to absorb humidity, insulating and thermo-regulating properties, non-allergenic characteristics.
The flax requires no additional irrigation on top of what the atmosphere provides, making it a self sufficient and very environmentally conscious choice. There is also no wastage in the weaving process as the entire plant may be used.
The Ermenegildo Zegna fabric we use is part of a fully-integrated supply chain. Wool is sourced from Australia and New Zealand and processed in Italy.
In addition to supplying their own boutiques, they also have exclusive agreements globally with a handful of the best independent retailers including ourselves.
